  • Un film de Yuqi Kang

Découvrir le monde à travers les yeux d'Hopakuli, un novice tibétain âgé de cinq ans et partager les joies et les tristesses qu'il éprouve face à la rigueur de la vie monastique. A Little Wisdom tente de raconter une histoire d'enfants qui trouvent le bonheur à travers une vie simple et le pouvoir de leur imagination au sein des monastères.

In the lush mountains of Lumbini, Nepal, the birthplace of the Buddha, stands an isolated Buddhist monastery that doubles as an orphanage. Abandoned at a young age, brothers Hopakuli and Chorten are just two of the orphans living in the monastery as novices. In this intimately observed debut feature, director Yuqi Kang spent one year living with the monks. Through her camera, she observes the brothers spending their time climbing trees, telling ghost stories and watching cartoons, while also performing early morning prayers and regimented monastic duties. Kang crafts a fine portrait of two child monks, struggling to balance their austere upbringing with the fantasies of childhood and their longing for family. (Aisha Jamal)
